I am descended from John H. Kershner (b. Apr 8, 1805 Augusta Co., Va.) brother of George Kershner b.ca. 1818. John H. left Virginia about 1826 for Hawkins Co., Tennessee where his grandfather David was then living. He married there (1829) Martha Amis and in 1841 moved to Greene Co., Missouri where he died in Dec. 1856. I do have some information of some of their other brothers.
